My Go-To Summer Beauty Product with Raw Sugar!

Hey everyone! Hope you’re all well. I noticed I hadn’t talked about new beauty products on the blog in a while, and I recently collaborated with a great brand! I’ve been using some Raw Sugar products for a while, for example their amazing smelling hand soap. They were so kind to send me their shampoo, conditioner, and hair masque so I thought I’d talk about it here on the blog! I’ve genuinely fallen in love with these products and they’re so easy to find at your local Target!


Alright, you guys know the drill by now. Let’s talk PACKAGING! Raw Sugar is always standing out on the shelves. From the bright white (and soft) bottle, to the wood textured cap. I haven’t seen any shampoos or conditions with this specific look. It’s totally bohemian, summer inspired, and every California girl’s dream vibe! I’m in love with the bright colors that hey used for the font and how well it all ties together to represent the brand so well!



One of my favorite products they sent over is the All That Shines Hair Masque. I had never tried a hair masque before but WOW has it changed the game for me! This specific product from Raw Sugar has grapefruit, kale, lemon, and orange peel oil. It honestly smells so good and leaves your hair feeling refreshed and smooth! I will put this ONLY ON THE ENDS OF MY HAIR for about 10-15 minutes after shampoo and conditioner. I will apply it, tie it up with a scrunch, and proceed to do any of my other shower routines while it sets in. Simply rinse and you’re done!


Quick photography/blogging tip for you guys: using props (for example flowers, bags, coffee cups, etc.) can play a big role when taking photos. It gives you an opportunity to interact and adds a little something different than you simply standing in front of a background. Interact with anything you can! Whether that’s props you bring or your environment that can include steps, hills, trees, etc.


As for shampoo and conditioner, I’ve been using The Moisture Smoothie every other day! What I love most about this product is how AMAZING it smells. With coconut, agave, and sweet almond milk, this stuff totally reminds me of my childhood. For me, anything with coconut takes me for a trip down memory lane. Back to summer when I was kid and my days were filled with trips to the beach, the pool, playing with the neighborhood kids and having water balloon fights, and of course days at the skate park! It’s crazy how a smell or a photo can take you straight back to easier times!


At times, I am reluctant to work with beauty brands because of all the issues I’ve had with my skin. When I was younger, things like shampoo, conditioner, and various soaps would have negative effects on my skin. However, I’m glad to mention that these products did not cause any breakouts or irritations with my sensitive skin! Another plus about these products is that they’re not any more expensive than brands like Pantene. You can have the cutest bottles displayed in your shower for the same price! What’s better than that??

Hope you guys enjoyed this beauty inspired post! I’d definitely recommend checking out these products, they are all linked in the first paragraph of this post. There are also many different scents and variations of these specific products, so you can find exactly what’s right for you! Let me know what you think down in the comments or what your go-to summer hair product is! xx

    These products sound so good! I’d love to try that hair mask.
    And thank you for the tip about using props, I’m thinking about starting a second blog for travel and I can use all the help I can get on posing for photos!

    I am loving the Love Beauty & Planet range which is not only carbon neutral and made from recycled products, but it actually smells really nice and works a dream on my hair. We love products that are not only good for you but good for the planet! xx
